For the first three innings

of Monday’s season-opening

baseball game, Mt. Lake

Area could do no wrong.

The Wolverines were

sharp on defense and solid

on offense, building a 6-0

lead over Jackson County


But in the bottom of the

fourth, everything unraveled

for the Wolverines.

Six Wolverine errors allowed

the Huskies to plate

12 runs in the inning. JCC

added four runs in the fifth

to seal a 16-6 season-opening

win over MLA at Jackson.

“This was the first taste

of varsity for a lot of kids,

and I think we saw both the

best we can be and the worst

we can be,” MLA Coach Tim

Snyder said. “We can’t afford

to give good teams extra outs

to work with each inning.

But there were a lot of positives.

“I loved how we hit the

ball hard all day. We were

aggressive on the bases. We

found a couple of guys who

can pitch. We know it’s going

to get better.”

The Wolverines struck

first with a pair of runs in

the second inning. Adam

Watkins laced an RBI triple

and Jacob Suess added an

RBI single.

In the third, MLA plated

runs on an Eric Wenner

single and a Jared Willaby


The Wolverines tacked on

two more runs in the fourth

on Huskies errors, taking a

6-0 lead.

“We were cruising to that

point,” Snyder said. “Jared

Willaby threw great the first

three innings.”
